Employer of Record Service: The Basics

As a form of outsourcing, an Employer of Record Indonesia service provider legally bears all the administrative responsibilities of managing a company’s employees. EoR responsibilities include but are not limited to recruitment, payroll, and work permits.

While the Employer of Record service provider legally holds employment contracts, your company would still have autonomy in terms of day-to-day operations. Your company will still make all the final decisions in business strategies as well as employee management and supervision.

What Our Clients Say

Contact Our Consultants


As soon as you decide you’d like us to be your Employer of Record, the onboarding process starts and will take approximately 5 days in our HR and Payroll department.

You will need to have a company that meets your home country’s requirements and agree to a 2-month salary deposit for a fixed-term employment contract.

You will need your employee’s personal documents (KTP, KK, BPJS cards) as well as employee benefits information such as salary and other benefits.

A comparable service to EoR is Professional Employer Organization (PEO). EoR’s and PEO’s are similar in that they both assist with outsourcing human resources services, but differ in legal responsibilities.
While a PEO may also assist you in recruitment, your company will still hold employee contracts. This means your company will still bear all legal liabilities when hiring but a PEO takes on your employees and are responsible for anything HR-related.

In contrast, an EoR is the legal employer of those your company hires, meaning they hold employment contracts - EoR’s put your business and employees on their payroll.
